Its Past.. Its Present.. Its Future.
TN the spring of 1910 a legislative act was passed by the General Assembly of Ohio
"*■ that authorized establishing two normal schools. Governor Harmon appointed a com-
mission to select the site of the schools, and in December of that year Kent was chosen to be
the home of one of these new institutions. Early the following year, 1911, the first board of
trustees was appointed, appropriations were
made for two buildings, and Dr. J. E. McGilvery
was elected the first president of Kent State
The first years were not easy. Classes held in
the spring of 1913 met in tents on the front
campus because the buildings were not yet com-
pleted. President McGilvery had his office
downtown above the bank, and it bore no re-
semblance to the fine office the present executive
of Kent now occupies. It was bare, and cold
and Dr. McGilvery says, ". . . so many holes
in the floor you didn't dare drop a pencil."
That first fall enrollment reached just 291, and
while summer classes attracted great numbers, the
regular session increased slowly and by 1927 was
just 600. Since that date the number of students
increased rapidly, reached its peak in 1940 and began
a sharp decline with the outbreak of the war in 1941.
William S. Kent had donated the land to the state
where the school was erected. In 1915, with the
addition of a four year course, it became Kent State
Normal College. Then, by legislative authority to
grant Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science de-
grees, it became Kent State College in 1929. "With a College of Liberal Arts as well as a College
of Education, six years later, in 1935, a College of Business Administration was added, and
under Governor Martin L. Davey the name changed to Kent State University — authorizing the
granting of Master of Arts degrees.
Soon after this time Kent gained the reputation
as the "fastest growing University in the country."
Social life flourished and things like Campus Night,
Top Hop, Homecoming, and Sadie Hawkins Day
were bright spots on everyone's calendar. But this
era of good time was comparatively short lived for on
December 8, 1941 students listened grimly to radios as
President Roosevelt asked Congress to declare war.
Within less than two years Kent became the 336th
College Training Detachment of the Army Air
Corps. Smaller classes and off-campus living, no
inter-collegiate athletics, or fraternities were evi-
dences of the change.
Now we are looking forward to tomorrow — a
large program of building expansion, a campus where once more that carefree life can flour-
ish, and where the University can grow to something bigger than any of our dreams.

Dean Raymond M. Manchester
GREATER than his titles imply are the services of Dean Raymond Manchester, for they
go far beyond merely the duties of a head of a math department, and dean of men.
His services have been that of spreading a good measure of warmth into the lives of the
people with whom he works. Through his efforts the Penny Drive sends Staters to as many
"Kent-sick" boys as is possible; through his efforts for nine years now the beaten, the corrupt,
and the excessively gay have received enlightenment, admonishment, and moral restitution em-
bodied in the Saturday Letter. Perhaps the Dean had better speak for himself — ^this speech,
given at the first Senior Assembly in the fall credits the giver as a master of comprehension of
the student's soul, as well as a master of wit:
"President Clark, Honorable Master of Ceremonies, Distinguished Collaborators, Repre-
sentatives from the Faculty, Delegates from the Intellectual Fringe, Key Collectors, Queens,
Certificate Chasers, Book-losers, Over-sleepers, and Paid-up members of the super-colossal sec-
tion of the amalgamated Magna Cum Laude Association for the uplifting of academic souls:
"Let me correct President Clark on one point. He suggests the desirability of climbing
high (mentally, morally, and spiritually) to the end that you may improve your view and
lengthen your vision. I wish to call attention to the fact that those who have attended
Kent State for four years have seen everything.
"It is an honor to be asked to participate in this program and address an aggregation,
the members of which have made such enviable records in keeping their point averages ex-
tremely low over such a long period of time.
"It is a challenge to stand before those who with and without the aid of books, teachers,
libraries, laboratories, and mechanical devices have acquired a limited number of the first letters
of the alphabet. Even though such possessions were purchased with judicious use of the red
This is his philosophy .... his humor .... that is a
part of Kent to her sons and daughters ....
wherever they may be ... .
apple, subtle flattery, and nimble repartee, one must give credit where credit is due and, re-
gardless of the procedure of collecting, you did try.
"It is a pleasure to look into your bright and shining faces. I must admit, however, that
in the words of a famous humorist, 'God knows some of them need looking into.'
"To those of you who have not been attending classes for a month or two, your teachers
send greetings. They (your teachers) think of you daily and speak your names. In fond
memory, they write down neat little "X's" and you know what "X's" mean on the bottom
of your favorite letter. Not only do your teachers remember you with "X's" but they draw
perfect "O's" in a row to probably represent a string of pearls and a "forget-me-not" sentiment.
At the end of each quarter, your teachers turn in for each and every one a note carrying the letter
"F." This, of course, stands for friendship.
"To those majoring in extra-curricular activities and to all unattached flibbertigibbets,
the University sends best wishes and expresses a hope that you will visit us when convenient.
The University suggests that you should check up on vacation dates Q
so that you may arrive and leave home at appropriate moments. ^ •-«.='--
"To those desiring diplomas, I would suggest that you call at the Of-
fice of the Registrar and indicate the kind, color, and size. You should
also list the honors you feel would be pleasing to you. A small addi-
tional charge will be made for the masters diploma to cover expenses
incident to the wrapping of the hood about your neck on Commence-
"To those desiring the pleasure of marching in the academic procession, I wish to suggest
that you indicate a choice of position. In case you desire a place with the deans and speakers,
a red necktie should be worn and a sharp tilt given to the cap.
"To one and all I wish to extend congratulations upon originality of dress and cleverness
exhibited in cap selection. The outfits are especially suitable for the men because we all know
that the good appearance of male graduates is directly proportional to the amount of the
domes covered up.
"If any one of you is married, contemplates marriage, or is flippantly flirting with the
idea, let me urge caution. My Aunt Mary always said she was married one hundred times.
As she put it, the first one was O.K., but the next two were naughts.
"I have enjoyed these few moments with you and wish to thank you for your attention.
My only request is that if, at any time within the next few weeks, you should accidentally
find out what time it is, please let me know."
To Dean Manchester and his twenty-four years of service we dedicate the Chestnut Burr.
Passing of Time
Time goes you say . . .
Time stops ... we go . . .
HIS IS KENT STATE UNIVERSITY in nineteen hundred and forty-four.
This, a time when all of us found changes everywhere . . . saw khaki uniforms and many un-
familiar faces where we had remembered fraternity men in tweeds and horrible neckties . . .
watched enrollment drop to just seven hundred . . . missed some of our favorite professors
who were no longer facing their classes. Varsity athletics became something again remem-
bered and upper classmen in nostalgic retrospect related to eager freshmen about past tri-
umphs, like last season's victory over Akron U. after thirteen years.
Instead of the carefree existence that had been such a part of us in other years, many were
working in war industries, studying the map making course the government offered, or teach-
ing recreational activities to the children of war workers. All of this, and even more vividly
the casualty lists that included our former classmates, and at last we realized that we were at
war. It had taken more than time to make us aware of it.
Time became more important to us than ever before. Time that moved too slowly when
we waited for letters or that someone's furlough. Time that speeded by too quickly when the
furlough came, when a term paper was due, or when we realized that the quarter was nearly
over. And because it became so much more important than ever before, the nineteen forty-
four Chestnut Burr has based its theme on time. The mornings, afternoons, and evenings that
make up each day, and week, of this year. These pages are your story of the seven hundred
who came back and carried on, to keep alive that indescribable some-
thing that has always been Kent.
It will take more than war to quell that spirit. This year has
shown that we can keep it in spite of adversity. We know that in the
years of peace that will come someday, perhaps others will be thankful
to those who helped to keep alive that feeling. We must keep on doing
our part to keep it alive, yet of the outcome, time alone can tell.
HETHER dressed in autumnal browns,
winter white, or spring green, Kent State
University's campus presents a lovely land-
scape of rolling slopes, old oaks, maples, and
elms, and winding paths.
And all year around the campus is dotted
with students making the most of their free
time. In the warm late spring and summer
they study in the welcome shade of the large
trees. In the winter they tobbogan and ski
and sled on the numerous hills.
Set high on the hilltop is the semi-circle
of original buildings. Leading directly to
the Administration building is the main walk
starting at the University corner and winding
under traditional Prentice gate and past the
seal of the former and still respected Kent
On the crest of the hill also are the two
oldest class room buildings — ^Merrill and Kent
halls, Down the slope stand Lowery and
Moulton halls, formerly dormitories for wo-
men and soon to be returned for use by wo-
men students after serving over a year as
barracks for the Army aircrew.
McGilvrey hall, the million dollar science
building, completes the semi-circle. Hidden
from view of the main thoroughfare is the
newest women's dormitory, Engleman hall,
named after the University's late president-
emeritus, James O. Engleman. Completing
the physical equipment of the University is
the heating plant which houses the industrial
arts department, and, of course, Rockwell
Library, situated in the hollow in the front
of the campus.
IR. RAYMOND M. CLARK stepped
from his role as professor of Psychology to
take over the leadership of the University in
the spring of nineteen forty-three. As act-
ing president he has managed to keep the
affairs of the University well organized
through a trying situation. The task of or-
ganizing and arranging the details of a past
administration into comprehensibility for a
new administration has not been easy.
The assumption of new duties has not closed
the door of his office to the comparative
trivialities, the personal problems of the stu-
dents. Instead they have found an audience
behind the huge desk, a small man with a
large capacity for listening.
In the management of the front office Dr.
Clark's invaluable aid has been the versatile
Miss Alice Carter, the president's secretary.
who has been responsible for general oflSce
On July first, 1944, Mr. George A. Bow-
man, will be inaugurated as president of Kent
State University, and Dr. Clark will return
to his life work, the teaching of psychology.
IRST to greet anxious freshmen in the
fall at registration is Emmit C. Stopher, Uni-
versity Registrar. He patiently listens to the
endless woes of conflicting schedules that
comes from upperclassmen as well as new
students. Across the atrium is O. B. Law's
office. This year again, he acted as advisor
to the student allocations committee, and
through his able guidance they allocated all
student activity fees.
Dr. De Weese, director of the University
health service, and his assistants. Dr. Leggett,
Dr. English, and nurses, Mittie Smith and
Mary Jane Slates, offered help for everything
from a sore throat to a case of measles.
Supervising maintenance of University
property was Larry Woodell. He and his
staff were constantly behind the scenes of
every dance and basketball tournament. Last
spring Dr. Weldon Williams, former English
professor, was appointed as University Libra-
rian. Since his appointment many changes in
organization have come about in Rockwell
Director of Student Placement is the posi-
tion ably filled by Dr. Lester Munzenmayer.
Through his efforts a greater percentage of
students than ever before have been placed in
schools in Ohio and other states. He has ar-
ranged interviews with representatives from
many national companies that resulted in
placement of Kent men and women to posi-
tions of responsibility.
I LADING the School of Art is Miss
Nina Humphrey who injects into her stu-
dents all the enthusiasm she has for her de-
partment . . . Mr. Fred Marbut, other than
his work as acting head of the School of
Journalism, has guided student publications
and supervised and edited University bulletins
Professor Denker held the baton that led
the School of Music through another success-
ful year while in the directors chair of the
University Theatre was E. Turner Stump,
chairman of the School of Speech.
lUCH of the credit for the reputation
of fine teachers turned out by Kent State
University goes to Dean John Blair, of the
College of Education. His classes are inspira-
tional because of the originality and wit he
uses in conducting them.
Dean Arden Allyn, College of Business
Administration leader, has helped to develop
the scope of business training offered in the
Offering a broad cultural background the
College of Liberal Arts is headed by Dean
Earl Crecraft. Much of its success is due to
his consideration and understanding for mem-
bers of the college.
Their poHtical campaign was gigantic.
Under the leadership of sophomore council
representatives, Gloria Cianciola and Don
Wargowsky, they organized early in the Fall
and later elected Jim Elliott, president, Sue
Alstot, vice president, and Barbara Berkey
and Barbara McDowell secretary and treasurer.
They delved into dramatics with "The
Family Upstairs," and contributed the talents
jEARLY three hundred freshmen en-
rolled in the fall quarter and, small but
mighty, the Class of Forty-eight started its
college career with all the enthusiasm that
Freshman classes have had in years past. They
went through registration with comparative
ease as they listened dubiously to the stories
upper classmen told of previous years when
it took more than patience to wade through
the endless streams of students waiting in lines.
They found college life a little different than
they had imagined, but they soon adjiisted
and became a part of it. An important part
too, because they could be the class that would
first see Kent in the peace time to come.
of thespians, Dave Ryan, Joan Shremp, and
Betty Gervin and Edwin Suvanto, to Univer-
sity Theatre productions.
The Stater groomed some of them into
budding journalists, and the names of John
Thomas, Carol Linder, Helen Piatt, Kay Tolt,
and Ted Phillips made frequent by-lines.
One of their number was shy George
Yamashiro, Japanese rehabilitation student,

In the spring, with chairman Sue Alstot,
they climaxed their activities by joining the
Sophomore and Junior classes in presenting
the Popularity Ball, where the Most Popular
Man and Most Popular "Woman were pre-
N an early fall election Don Wargowsky
was elected president of the class, Julie Juch,
vice-president, and Gladys Ulch and Marjorie
Gamble, secretary and treasurer.
FuUfilling the promise they had shown as
freshmen the year before members of the class
were found active in every part of the Uni-
versity. Petite, Betty Lee Winfield, transfer
from Muskingum, took honors as bandleader
Tommy Dorsey's choice for Chestnut Burr
Queen. Gloria Cianciola headed the Alloca-
tions committee and helped class members
Elaine Chamberlain, Don Wargowsky, and
Norma Hackundy carry the torch of student
government, as representatives to student
council. They found need for their talents in
publications and Noreen Lutz and Julie Juch
over worked their speed graphics to turn out
Burr photos. Norma Nisley, Dottie Jones
and Lillian Sokoll were busy each Monday and
Thursday with the Stater. Prexy Wargowsky
was elected Most Popular Man.
R. HERMAN D. BYRNE, professor
and politician, always on hand to help mem-
bers of the election committee when prefer-
ential ballots were to be counted, is head of the
Political Science department. . . . The history
oflSce is under the leadership of Dr. Sellow
Roberts, who resembles every freshmans idea
of what a college professor should look like . . .
As the calm and efficient business woman.
Professor Cleo Crow heads the department of
Secretarial Science ... In addition to his posi-
tion as English department head, Professor
C. E. Satterfield has worked for a number of
years as a member of the Publications Policy
committee . . . Well known far outside Uni-
versity circles as a leader in his field is Dr.
Christian F. Rumold, Physical Science . . . Dr.
H. W. Hudson, professor and capable leader
of the Economics department . . . The Soci-
ology department head. Dr. James T. Laing
keeps his classes amused with his stories about
"my nine year old" . . . No other instructor
in the University shows more enthusiasm for
her profession than does Professor G. Hazel
Swan, Kindergarten Primary . . . Dr. Donald
Anthony is the industrious head of the Busi-
ness Administration department . . . Supervis-
ing Secondary Education is Dr. A. W. Stewart,
who is known in educational circles for his
work with testing and evaluation . . . Directing
work of the departments of Geology and Geog-
raphy is Dr. David Olsen . . . Psychology stu-
dents receive guidance from Dr. D. W. Pearce
. . . Women who are majoring in the field of
Home Economics are lead by Professor Bertha
L. Nixon . . . Dr. C. C. Kochenderfer is the
capable leader of the department of Commerce
. . . Formerly a missionary to South America,
Dr. Willis J. Burner now heads the department
of Foreign Languages. The important job of
supervising the work of student teachers is
the responsibility of Dr. A. L. Heer . . . Dr.
Maurice Baum's classes in the Philosophy de-
partment, are the most animated courses in
I HIS year more than ever before the
juniors took over positions of responsibility
within the school.
A great deal of their efforts turned to journ-
alism. Ruth Recht, occupied the chief's chair
in the Stater oflSce second quarter, and Johnny
WilKamson was appointed business manager.
Jane Selzer, and Elizabeth Erfley were edition
editors of the paper. "Here's the Deal" was
the twice-weekly column of what went on
about campus, as penned by Don Kemp and
T. K. Harris. Herbert Koehn was chosen
business manager of the Burr, and Jean Lenner,
Mary Thomas, and John "Williamson worked
on the editorial staff.
The years social events were concluded when
the class joined Freshmen and Sophomores in
presenting the Popularity Ball. Their class
prexy, Alice Cox, was introduced as Most
Popular Woman. Other class officers were
vice president John "Williamson, and secretary
and treasurer, Ethel Day and Betsy Case.
Peggy Curry did an excellent job as the first
president of the Student Government Associa-
tion. In the theater, the names of Haines and
Greenbaum meant good entertainment and
Arline Riggle made a fine reputation with her
beautiful stage sets.
OR the class of 1944 the occasion for
donning caps and gowns and assuming tem-
porary academic elegance was the first assembly
of the year given in honor of the seniors. The
thoughts that ran through their heads as they
marched in the processional were ably expressed
by president Meg Cook in her address to the
class . . .
In the fall of 1940 we started our college
careers. Fifteen hundred anxious freshmen,
that made up the largest class ever to enter the
University, the class of forty-four. "We
quickly delved into every activity on campus,
wanted to be seasoned veterans of the college
world in less than a week. Politics raged and
the names of Gallagher, Kieselbach, Harris,
Davis, and Thorne were ones we all remember
now, foixr years later when our number has
dwindled to just under two hxindred. Those
names and others will not join us in that aca-
demic procession across the campus in June
but we shall be thinking of them, whether
they be in England, or India, or the Aleutians.
We will remember all the good times we had
when we were still the largest class and some-
day at that long awaited homecoming we will
see them all again.
JHIS year the Chestnut Burr has selected
twelve people, each for a particular reason,
a very definite part of the Kent scene. We
Peggy Curry, for her never ending enthusi-
asm for everything she undertakes, and because
she is a house guest at the White House or a
hostess to a group of refugee students with
equal ease . . . and best of all for the confidence
she inspires in the future of Kent State.
Arline Riggle, in appreciation of the hours
spent back stage building the scenery that
others took the bows before. Whether in
front of the footlights or back stage was be-
cause she loved the theater, not personal glory.
Johnny Proctor, first for his inspirational
speech given Brotherhood Week, and again for
the many little things he did for us at Russ
(are you twenty-one?) O'Conke's Deck.
Fran Murphey, with her ancient model of a
Speed Graphic always looking the part of a
journalist and worrying because some fresh-
man wondered if she went to school here.
Don Kemp, because as must all would be
Winchell's, he had to take a lot of criticism,
and because he took it so well.
Don Wargowsky — his always happy smile
that makes others feel that way too. His lead-
ership that has given him so many positions of
Marilou Sowash for much of the credit for
the work the assembly committee has done this
year, and the initiative she has shown as student
Martha Jean Lauderbaugh because she is
another who works hard and lets another take
the spothght for it. She thinks of others than
Phil Rubin and cameras were on the spot
to cover every dance and social event with
film and flashgun, and his supreme confidence
in his ability to surpass even the experts.
The Team of Haines and Greenbaum always
on hand to do an act to give sparkle to any
type program . . . from slapstick to Shake-
Al Annadonna for his friendly smile and
his work on Men's Union, for trying to keep
the men together in a difficult time.

THE RECREATION, THE
STUDY AND ORGANIZATIONS
THAT MAKE UP MOST OF
OUR DAY EACH AFTERNOON
^HE afternoon usually began officially
with one of Okies sandwiches or a visit
to Mrs. Hall's. If lunch hour was brief
and hurried, we envied those who could sit
in the Brady for an hour of catching up on
campus gossip. But many of us were off to
another class, a job, or a meeting. Everyone
seemed to have this or that committee function to attend and the time from noon till evening
Monday at four Student Council held its weekly session up in Merrill Hall. Peggy Curry,
as the first president to work a year under the new constitution, was responsible for a great deal
of its success. Meg Cook was vice president and election chairman, Gloria Cianciolla watched
the budget as treasurer and chairman of allocations committee, and Jane McDowell was secretary.
In the spring election students voted on several recommended revisions in the constitution,
many of which were discussed at the meetings of the Student Government Association held each
quarter. Attendance at these meetings showed student interest was high and after a years trial
the constitution proved to be a working document.
)ELAIDE SNYDER held the editor's
chair the first half of the year with Ruth
Smith in the business manager's oflSce. Cut
to two editions a week they did put out a fine
paper. Snyder's editorials were some of the
finest ever written for the Stater. In February
Ruth Recht assumed the title of chief and
Johnny Williamson took the feminine touch
from the business managers office. Recht
caused a sensation by her purple and perfumed
IG MAN, Herb Koehn, paved the way
for privacy among future business managers
by taking over a new office complete with
office hours and his name on the door. The
photographic stajQF patiently put up with the
attempts of editor Jane McDowell to contrib-
ute photographically to the book. Johnny
Williamson and Virginia Good were associate
editors until a spring quarter when Johnny
joined the Stater, and Mrs. Good her husband
O W A
I HE Office of "War Activities, founded
because of a wartime need for a campus service
group, sponsored one of the most successful
campus campaigns for funds when it raised
$1200 in the United War Chest drive.
Dean of Men Raymond E. Manchester was
presented with a $300 check for the Penny
fund from this money. The amount enabled
the dean to send Kent Staters to more uni-
versity men in this country.
A check for $200 was turned over to the
World Student Service fund and another
donation of $100 went to the infantile paralysis
fund. At a special assembly the check for
the paralysis donation was given to Don War-
gowsky by Jean Barger.
The Red Cross war fund's share in the chest
drive was $200. A small fund of $234 remain-
ing in the chest has been held over until the
fall of 1944.
Other activities of the O.W.A. was a cadet
welcome dance, an adopt-a-soldier campaign
and Christmas favors for servicemen.
Peggy Curry was chairman of the organiza-
tion and Virginia Black, secretary. Chairmen
for the chest drive were Betty Osmundson and
ITH the new student constitution on
trial in 1943-44, reorganiaztion of the uni-
versity publications committee was authorized

man of the school of journalism, named four
students to the committee, including Jane
McDowell, editor of the Chestnut Burr; Ade-
laide Snyder, former Stater editor; Phyllis
Pontius and Don Wargowsky. Faculty mem-
bers were Dr. Lester H. Munzenmayer and
C. E. Satterfield.
The constitution gave students a larger rep-
resentation on the committee. In previous
years, it had had a smaller percentage of stu-
dent members than faculty.
The business manager and editor of the Kent
Stater for the last half of the year were chosen
in February. Announcements of publication
heads for the Stater and the Chestnut Burr
were made late in May by the committee.

BY ORDER or CO.
TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE
IN THE PREPARATION FOR BATTLE AT
O our campus since April, 1943 there have come hundreds of ambitious boys to study that
they might better serve their country at war. Boys from all over this land, here to gain the
knowledge that pieced together and used effectively will bring us victory.
They each have a job to do, and realizing that, they worked hard, went on for more training,
and made way for another group to follow them.
Whether in the class room, counting cadence through the halls, or dancing with a co-ed on
Saturday night they were as much a part of Kent as any student out of uniform.
We salute the Army Air Corps and more specifically the 33 6th College Training Detach-
ment here at Kent State University . . .

After the Stars Come Out
TURN our thought for a while from books, and exams, and classroom cares, to an eve-
ning at the Deck, a dance, or the local movie. Some nights were big and important, like Top
Hop, or Campus Night, or the Theater Formal, and required the usual mad scramble for the
right formal that would "do something" for a sorority sister' and the fellows mad dash to pick
up his dates corsage at Terese's ten minutes before the dance. Those were nights to remember,
nights that will bring back happy memories for years to come. Seeing the whole gang at Karp-
ers after twelve, and munching shoestrings before the long walk home was all part of dance
There were other nights too, when we were up until four or five slaving over the paper that we
only knew about for twelve weeks in advance, or nights when we were lonesome and wished
that we could be someplace else for just a little while, or better that the someone could be here.
Many nights and many memories of after the stars came out ....
Chestnut Burr Queen
I HIS was Betty Lee Winfield's first year
at Kent, but it was an eventful one . . . High-
lighting her career as a sophomore in the Col-
lege of Liberal Arts was her selection as 1944
Chestnut Burr Queen by bandleader Tommy
Dorsey . . . This resulted in her being guest
of honor at the Burr dance in the spring.
Active in speech work, Betty Lee has appeared
in the University Theatre productions, "Schu-
bert Alley" and "Ladies in Retirement." A
transfer from Muskingum College, she is now
a member of Student Council and Sigma Sig-
ma Sigma sorority. This all happened during
her first year here ... so anything can happen
from here on in.
MISS KENT STATE
NE of the greatest tributes KSU can
pay to any one of its feminine students is to
elect her "Miss Kent State" . . . and this was
the tribute paid to Betty "Bunny" Bunnell . . .
Her formal presentation was at the Top Hop,
annual name -band dance. A senior in the col-
lege of education, she was president of the
HPE club, and a member of Student Council,
"K" Book committee, and the elections com-
mittee. Her Greek affiliation is Sigma Sigma
Sigma sorority. Bunny completed her aca-
demic hours in March and spent the last quar-
ter of the year teaching.
jury of artists and Captain William
Ackerman choose lovely Lila Sprague to reign
at the Campus Night festivities. In tradi-
tional manner the identity of the queen re-
mained secret until the actual time of presen-
tation when her name was called. With the
poise and charm that had made her the judges
choice. Miss Sprague walked through the
court of beauties to be crowned with a cornet
of white flowers.
The dark eyed brunette was wearing a
crown for the second time in two years, hav-
ing been chosen Penny Drive Queen by a
popular election the year previous.
A major in Elementary Education and a
member of Beta Gamma sorority, her college
career ended in the spring when she left school
to later take a teaching position near her home
Most Popular Woman
NOTHER way of spelling AUce Cox
is p-e-r-s-o-n-a-l-i-t-y . . . and this pleasing
personality is evident in everything she does
. . . from sitting in the Brady to singing in
the a cappella choir. A junior in the college
of education, the Most Popular Woman of
1944, this year was president of Beta Gamma
sorority and president of the junior class . . .
She is also a member of Student Council,
Student Court, Pan-Hellenic council, Chi
Mu, and Kappa Delta Pi, And with all these
activities, she even finds plenty of time for
her fiance, Bob Myers.
Most Popular Man
AYBE it was the twinkle in his eye . . .
and maybe it was his reputation for Univer-
sity service that did the trick . . . but at any
rate, KSU students elected him their Most
Popular Man of 1944. Only a sophomore in
the College of Liberal Arts, Don served this
year as president of the sophomore class, vice
president of Student Council, vice president
of Men's Union, and a debater on the foren-
sic squad. Besides this, Don always has a
smile for everyone, even before the campaign,
applies himself diligently to his extra-cur-
ricular activities, and is a consistently good
student academically. It might have been
the twinkle, but there was a lot more to go
frolic of the year. Campus Night,
the parade with its integral rivalry of cos-
tumes and floats. The Queen radiant behind
her flowers as the maypole was wound and
the Metcalf band boomed out the joy of the
day. Then the dance, and the presentation
of May Queen Lila Sprague and her attend-
ants, and at intermission the sorority and
fraternity sing on the steps of Merrill Hall.
The crowd, which had been gathering all day,
stood in the midst applauding not only for
the songs but for something more, the spirit
of Kent State going on in the face of war.
A very real reminder of war was there, a
group of men counting cadence in our parade,
five hundred khaki clad men saluting the
queen. A different kind of a Campus Night?
Yes, but wasn't it fun?
HRU the stage door of many a Theatre
production to the music of Harold Nelson
went over 200 students and their guests at-
tending the Winter Formal of the University
Theatre January 15.
Staged by Mary Haines and Stella Green-
baum, co-chairmen, the affair was second
only in size to the Top Hop for 1943-44
dances. Alpha Psi Omega tapped pledges
and the membership trophy cup was pre-
sented to Beta Gamma sorority for the second
OCTAL event of the year was Top Hop
night when everyone turned out to dance to
the music of Paul Hand's orchestra. Soft
lights, and even Wills gym assumed a new
glamour for the evening. During intermis-
sion Peggy Curry, President of the Student
Government Association, presented Miss Betty
Bunell, as Miss Kent State, while the members
of Sigma Sigma Sigma formed a court for
the queen. Credit for the well planned event
went to Mary Thomas, chairman of the social
committee, who in spite of the difficulties of
limited funds gave a dance that equaled any
other year and one which all of us will long
lEW faces figured prominently in Uni-
versity Theatre productions this year with
Freshman Arlene Riggle taking the spotlight
in Schubert Alley as the decorative and tal-
ented ingenue in the all-female cast.
Mary Haines and Stella Greenbaum con-
tinued their list of stage successes as two pixi-
lated sisters in Ladies in Retirement while
Frances Fairchild gained notice as the deliber-
ate murderess, Viola Cian swayed across the
stage as the red-haired haridan and a second
attractive love interest was introduced, Betty
Lee Winfield. Roy Dunn, pork barrel emm-
cee and ministerial student went dramatic as
a wolfish renegate.
The theatre season was brought to a hilari-
ous close with Noel Coward's Hay Fever,
situation comedy played with a high hand by
the Misses Riggle, Fairchild and Haines, while
Dave Ryan, Ed Suvanta, Bob Beckwith and
Jim Elliott, Freshman Players president,
proved the men were still very much in the
Suzie Schwartz proved herself a capable
electrician, Riggle and Ryan executed the
sets, Adelaide Snyder was theatre manager,
and Director-Producer E. Turner Stump pre-
sided over all.

Seek her side to win her blessing, throng her gates to hear her name.
Leave her gates to sing her praise; go afar to spread her fame.
